The City of Cape Town has put contingency plans in place to ensure continued service delivery.
This comes after the South African Municipal Workers Union ( SAMWU) and the Independent Municipal and Allied Trade Union (IMATU) announced that municipal workers will strike on Monday.
The City says, while it respects the “right of the staff to participate in strike action” its priority is still service delivery to its residence.
“Residents must place their wheelie bins out on their normal collection day. If the wheelie bin has not been emptied on the normal collection day residents are requested to leave the wheelie bin out for the rest of the week, as the Solid Waste Department will be catching up later in the week,” said City spokesperson Kylie Hatton.
